The Midnight Story


Every sailor has a story and our beloved captain is no different. He’s been at this for a long time and had some wonderful adventures with the locals and visitors to the Sheepshead Bay community.

In the Beginning

It all started when Jeff was about 10 years old and he had his first Sheepshead Bay fishing experience. He fell in love with the idea of someday owning his own boat and fishing for a living. The call of the open water was so strong he got a job as a deck hand as soon as possible.

Mentors

While working on various boats, Jeff was mentored by some of the greatest fishing legends, including Captain George “White Chin” O’Connell and Captain Eddie “Seawolf” Moraski.

The Fleet

By the age of 21, Jeff became the proud owner of his first boat named the “Taurus”. Since that time, he has had seven other boats including: “Symba”, “”Bullet”, “Bullet II”, “Baby Bullet”, “Captain Midnight”, “Midnight Star”, & “Lady Midnight”

From Bullet to Midnight


For many years our captain was operating under the Bullet Fleet banner, but after the last “Bullet” was retired, he decided to begin the Midnight Fleet era beginning with the Captain Midnight. With a total of three ships using the name, the Midnight Fleet, Captain, and Crew were born.
